Travellers can now take a long cruise along the Ganga, starting from Varanasi and going all the way to Kolkata.
Starting this month, Pandaw River Cruises will begin offering cruises along the Ganga. The cruise starts at Varanasi and makes a 15-day voyage downstream. The first such cruise will be departing from Varanasi on 28th September. There are regular departures from Varanasi through the winter of 2009-10 and again in 2010-11.
Predictably, this is an expensive cruise with prices starting from USD5000. The cruise will pass through some major destinations like Sarnath, Patna, Nalanda and Plassey before arriving at Kolkata.
See http://www.pandaw.com/info.php?p=1284&l=1&page=itin for more details on the tour.
